I had to make notes in order to read through all of what appears to be scanner artifacts throughout the book.
That said, this is not so much a reflection of the nook itself (which I purchased as more of a curiosity than anything else) but perhaps of the haste of production.
I might recommend this to others for the same reasons I got it for myself, but I would be inclined to recommend the printed version in the hoes that it might be more smoothly read.
It was a great buy, I am most excited; and finally, it comes from an amazing writer who( if you understand his prose) captivates you into believing, as he does.
Eliphas Lèvi is an exceptional writer, who, not only enlightens, but also encourages process.
Take care to enjoy the book, as much as I the book and its author.
